CAMH’s Teen Council organizes a Perspectives exhibition every two years that features work by Houston-area teens. Perspectives 174: Re: Generation explores issues of communication, technology, culture, identity, and the experience of coming of age in the 21st century. Artists are encouraged to freely interpret the exhibition’s title and themes through their work in any media, including but not limited to: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, and installations. Work selected for the show by guest juror Robert A. Pruitt was displayed in the Museum’s Zilkha Gallery and is included in a printed exhibition catalogue.
